    I read a post today, and have been asked whether Amsoil Torque-Drive™Synthetic Transmission Fluid is REALLY good enough to be used in our Allison Transmissions. AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ was reverse Engineered from Castrol Transynd to be a LESS Expensive Direct Replacement Alternative to save owners of the Allison Transmission money over the course of the lives of their Transmission.

    Also, I am running a special right now Exclusively from 1st SYNTHETICS. For a limited time only, when you order enough Amsoil Torque-Drive™Synthetic Transmission Fluid to do your normal service for your spin on filter and fluid change you will receive your first 6 months Membership in the Amsoil Preferred Customer Program for FREE!!!

    Well, here are the facts.

    THERMAL AND OXIDATIVE STABILITY
    Hot weather and operating conditions are no excuse for poor transmission reliability. By delivering a slower than normal oxidation rate, AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ prevents sludge that blocks small valves, prevents varnish that restricts component movement and reduces oil thickening that slows down shift times. AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ lasts longer than conventional ATFs, protects better than conventional ATFs and extends transmission life beyond that possible with conventional ATFs.

    SHEAR STABLE
    Conventional automatic transmission fluids use petroleum oils with viscosity index (VI) improvers added to increase the oil’s operational temperature range. Over time, VI improvers shear down, promoting premature wear by leaving only a thin base oil to protect vital transmission components. AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ does not contain VI improvers, which means no VI improver shear down regardless of the operating environment. The unmatched film strength of AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ prevents wear, significantly increasing the transmission service life.

    FRICTION DURABILITY
    Oxidation by-products destroy the sensitive friction characteristics of transmission fluids, resulting in the rapid degradation of shift quality. The thermal and oxidative stability inherent in AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ assures consistent, smooth clutch engagement with no harsh shifting throughout the life of the fluid. AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ maintains proper coefficients of friction, prevents clutch glazing and prevents elongated shift times.

    EXTREME TEMPERATURE PERFORMANCE
    Transmissions operate in temperature extremes. In hot temperatures, the synthetic construction of AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ virtually eliminates oil evaporation and delivers a better lubricating film than conventional oils for better overall protection of vital components. Oil consumption is reduced and transmissions require less maintenance.

    In cold temperatures, AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ easily flows, as it does not contain the wax found in conventional ATFs. Cold temperature fluidity allows for the proper operation of small, delicate, electronically controlled solenoids that affect gear changes. Unlike conventional ATFs, transmissions using AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ have quick response times during cold operations and can be used immediately upon start-up.

    AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid is based on the same type of chemistry as TransSynd®. The fine Infra-red (IR) scan below, reveals a chemical "picture" of both products, shows NO measurable differences.

    Product Applications
    AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ is recommended as a direct replacement for TranSynd® Synthetic ATF in heavy duty, on and off highway automatic transmissions manufactured by Allison,® General Motors,® Ford,® Voith® and ZF® or wherever the standards TES-295, TES-389, C-4, Dexron® III, Mercon,® Voith G-1363 or ZF® TE-ML 14C are specified. Examples of operations that benefit from using AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ include municipal or transit buses, motor coaches, garbage haulers, motor homes, delivery vans, emergency vehicles, school buses, dump trucks, utility vehicles, cement trucks, line haul trucks and tow trucks.

    Where extended drain intervals are not specified by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), it is recommended that AMSOIL Torque-Drive™ be evaluated with oil analysis at standard OEM drain intervals or more frequently to establish proper drain interval. Where extended drain intervals are recommended by the OEM, follow that recommendation. This includes the recommendations set by Allison® in document #1099F for TES-295 fluids.

    Cost

    What is the cost of Amsoil compared to TranSynd?

    I do belive TraSynd is $44 and Torque Drive retail price is $43.55. Preferred Customer Pricing you would have to contact me for, but it is around 25% lower at the wholesale cost..
